I found this practice cookie recipe on here:

Joans Cookie Dummy Dough

4 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup salt

1 1/2 cups water

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Combine the flour, salt and water; mix well and knead for 10 minutes. (or save time and throw into your KA

using the paddle or hook attachment). Roll out on a lightly floured surface.

Cut into desired shapes. Smooth edges out before baking.

Bake for 30 minutes; allow to cool.

Decorate with icing for practice. Allow to dry and spray with clear polyurethane on both sides to preserve for future reference.

But when I bake it it doesn't bake even, it gets air bubbles and the edges curl a bit. how can I get the dummies to bake evenly? would baking powder work? I also had to cook them at a slightly lower temperature.

Thanks in advance

Yes 1 cup. It's not edible for practice or display only.

Here are some salt dough recipes. I've heard that the ones that call for a little oil are better.
